    SEND IT BACK!
    I am sure you can fix it but do you think you have to fix a $323 brand new knife with "great f&f" ?
    If you lived over this side of the world , where you have to worry about shipment costs a lot maybe not, but when you are in US : I would send it back
    We are not talking about $50 yamawaku project..

    I had the same issue with my Konosuke #6. Only took me a few minutes to fix and there's no sign of an over grind. Having said that, I don't think I'd buy another Konosuke; it feels nice and the profile's good, but I get some mad sticktion on certain parts and although the F+F issue when ootb wasn't a big deal I'd still expect more from a $370 knife from a company that's held in high regard. Frankly, there's better cleavers for the price.

    Either would I, only because of our location.
    But if you bought it from, say, house of knives I'd take it back.
    How are they going to know about issues if no one points them out?

    what i meant is that for this kind of money, you can definitely get similar knives from Sakai with better fit & finish.

    Personally, I find that sharpening/fixing a knife endears it to me. No matter how much a knife costs, if you use it, it will require a lot of sharpening, thinning and polishing over it's life. Doing a little of this work when it's right off the self doesn't make a difference to me, and the hassle of shipping back and forth does not seem worth it.

    I don't mean to sound rude, but if you can't handle an imperfection like this, then your not prepared to look after the knife though it's life.

    But the vendor should definitely be made aware of this fault. Perhaps some store credit wouldn't go amiss either

    The craftsmen should not let a blade like this leave the shop, period.

    like the yusuke's and they'd be actually cheaper. =D

    back when i had a business and i tried to keep the quality of workmanship up, my employees and partners would hate me for it, but i just did what i had to do coz noone else would.

    Neither should the vendor...

    For those who say that they'd keep it and fix it I'm going to say that this is taking a chance because what if the issue is an overgrind from the side of the knife down into the edge? If that's the case then there's no fixing it through sharpening and it's also possible that sharpening can make the problem appear worse. To me there's to much at risk here for the consumer to take a chance.
